From the Cradle to Beyond the Grave:
The default position of the State is now to OWN your body. Your personal views are secondary to the State. The State does not care about your views or beliefs, all it cares about is owning your body and owning your mind. To this end it will do anything. And there is no end for what the State wants to do other than Owning everything, having Dominion over everything. Ymir has nothing on the tyranny of the British State; At least Ymir actually created something (the race of Frost Giants - unchanging things), the state cannot even do that, all it does is consume other things and want more and more power. Dominion is the goal of the State.
